✨✧ Celia VilelaE Viva A Juventude ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool Brazilian record from the start of the 60s – and one that almost feels more like Italian pop of the time than most of the music we know from Brazil! The tunes start out with rockish modes, but often bring a lot of Latin elements into the rhythms – creating these groovy sounds underneath the lead vocals of Celia Vilela – a powerful singer with just the sort of punch you might expect from her image on the cover! Many of these tunes would be right at home blasting out of a jukebox in early 60s Rome – and titles include "Sempre Houve Amor", "Es Meu Amor", "Conversa Ao Telefone", "Valentino Valentino", "Trem Do Amor", "Streap Tease Rock", and "Passo A Passo".

✨✧ Dead KennedysFresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables ... LP
Cherry Red (UK), 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Landmark work from The Dead Kennedys – and maybe still one of the greatest punk records to ever come from the American scene! There's so much here that so many other records are missing – razor-sharp instrumentation, a great sense of pacing, and most importantly, a biting wit that always keeps the whole thing from ever lapsing into any sort of over-serious cliches! Yet unlike their LA contemporaries, the group were also never ones to just lay into the jokes – as the political commentary here is especially pointed, and nearly every single song is a blistering attack on late 70s California mores and national obsessions. Every track's a gem – and titles include "Kill The Poor", "Forward To Death", "Let's Lynch The Landlord", "Your Emotions", "Holiday In Cambodia", "California Uber Alles", and "Stealing People's Mail" – plus a killer cover of "Viva Las Vegas".

Creedence Clearwater RevivalCreedence Clearwater Revival ... LP
Fantasy, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The stunning debut of CCR – a record that still burns with an undeniable fire after all these years! Sure, all the elements here have been copped by many – the fuzzy guitar, lean bluesy groove, and raw soul-inspired vocals of John Fogerty – but the way the group puts them together is tremendous – and there's a lean, raw vibe to the whole record that instantly communicates the urgency the group's music had back in the second half of the 60s! Even the group's take on other artists' songs never sound dated at all – and taken together, the mix of material on the record is even greater than the sum of its parts – with a power that punches more than any of these songs on their own. The whole thing's also a great testament to Fogerty's guitar skills too – with some raw solos that blow away most of the blues rock pretenders of the period – on titles that include "Get Down Woman", "The Working Man", "Gloomy", "Walking On The Water", "Ninety Nine & A Half", "Porterville", and "Susie Q".

Creedence Clearwater RevivalWilly & The Poor Boys ... LP
Fantasy, 1969. Near Mint- ... $49.99
It's hard to get any more classic than this for Creedence Clearwater Revival – as this legendary late 60s album is definitely the place where it all comes together! The pairing of John Fogerty's lead guitar and the scratching rhythm guitar of brother Tom really sounds wonderful here – driven on by tight bass and drums, but always with this rootsy edge that stretches from the Bay Area scene way down to the bayou! Titles include the classic "Down On The Corner" and a great version of "The Midnight Special" – plus "It Came Out Of The Sky", "Side Of The Road", "Effigy", "Don't Look Now", and "Fortunate Son".

Georgie FameSurvival – A Career Anthology 1963 to 2015 (6CD set) ... CD
Universal (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy 6CD ... $92.99 106.99
An incredible package of work by the legendary Georgie Fame – the first to ever fully document his talents, and also present a lot of rare work from every different stage in his career! Yes, there's already been a box on the market that documents Fame's early work – but that material only makes up the first CD or two on this set, and is quickly followed by loads of unusual tracks from the 70s – a time when Georgie was moving past the R&B-inspired sounds of his early career, taking off in new soulful modes, then returning to straighter jazz in later years. All that great span of sounds is here – and is a wonderful journey in music, as Fame never lost his charm, or the groove that first got him going – and the package brings together early Polydor material with later sides for Columbia, Island, Pye, and other labels – and includes 18 tracks that have never appeared before from the late 60s and early 70s, plus lots of other rare singles and unusual cuts too. There's a full unreleased live show from 1974 that's wonderful, some sweet electric early 70s sides that are appearing for the first time, and lots more too – all in a special box with 6CDs, a 48 page hardcover book, and a whopping 110 tracks in all. Take it from us – we're MASSIVE fans of this totally unique singer – and even though we have just about everything else we can get from him, there's still plenty here to make the box totally essential for our collection!

Golliwogs (Creedence Clearwater Revival)Fight Fire – The Complete Recordings 1964 to 1967 ... CD
Fantasy/Craft, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Fantastic freaky sounds by The Golliwogs – the group who later morphed into Creedence Clearwater Revival – but who already sound pretty great themselves! The style is close to Creedence, but nicely different too – much more garage rock overall, with the vocals of John Fogerty maybe tuned more towards a sound used by The Animals – although his guitar work also has plenty of fuzz! There's a definite influence from R&B, but maybe not as pronounced as in later years – and all the charms of CCR are clearly bubbling right there under the surface. The tracks were all recorded by Fantasy Records in the early days, and for years were considered something of a footnote to their later fame – but taken together here, they're more than strong enough to stand on their own. This new Craft presentation is the best they've ever looked, too – as the package has very detailed notes, and information on all the original recordings – with 23 titles that include "You Came Walking", "Little Tina", "Don't Tell Me No Lies", "Brown Eyed Girl", "Fight Fire", "Walking On The Water", "You Can't Be True", "She Was Mine", "Gonna Hang Around", "Call It Pretending", "Little Girl", and even an "Action USA Spot".

✨✧ Doctors Of MadnessPerfect Past – The Complete Doctors Of Madness (Late Night Movies All Night Brainstorms/Figments Of Emancipation/Sons Of Survival/bonus tra ... CD
RPM/Polydor (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from Doctors Of Madness – a group who have this amazing sound that not only prefaces punk and later dark 80s modes, but which also seems to link their sound back to some of the early 70s experiments of the David Bowie generation! The group can move loud and fast in ways that seem years ahead of their time – especially given that the first album here came out in March of 1976 – but they also have a slightly-creepy vibe at times – not goth, but pre-goth – like some of the early 80s groups who had a strong inspiration from Bowie and some of the glams. The whole thing is a real revelation – especially if you've only heard some of their music, but not that much at once – and the box set features three full albums, plus lots of bonus tracks – including demos and rare recordings – and a live concert too. Titles include "50s Kids", "Waiting", "Mitiz's Cure", "Mainlines", "B Movie Bedtime", "Brothers", "Suicide City", "Out", "Cool", "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye", and "Into The Strange". CD

✨✧ WinterhawkRevival ... LP
Lambda/Rockadrome, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The dude on the cover definitely looks like a Winterhawk – if we ever had to imagine such a creature – and the music on the record certainly lives up to that promise, too – with a freewheeling, all-jamming sound that's more mid 70s than you'd guess from the date of the record! The date's maybe a bit misleading, too – as Winterhawk jammed heavily in the Chicago scene of the 70s – and only got the chance to cut this record in their later years – but that also means that they're a lean, mean, trio – and one who've soaked up the best energies of their contemporaries! The music has vocals, but is mostly instrumental – with a full-on barrage of guitar, bass, and drums that rivals Rush at their most dynamic – a group that clearly inspired Winterhawk, who were also wise enough to not try to match them completely – just go for their same level of technical brilliance. Titles include "Sanctuary", "Free To Live", "Ace In The Hole", "Period Of Change", and "Can't See The Forest For The Trees". LP, Vinyl record album

Rare early solo material from Dutch jazz rock guitar eclecticist/genius Jan Akkerman – a late 60s album released in the Netherlands on Imperial after Akkerman's time in The Hunters and before his work with Brainbox and Focus! It's an early indication of his far reaching tastes and talent – playing in trio format for the most part, with couple bluesy psych jazz gems composed by Jan plus takes on diverse bag of covers including "Bag's Groove", "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy", "Ode To Billy Joe" and "Green Onions". Original numbers include "Revival Of The Cat" and "Moonbeam". 11 tracks in all. (Jazz, Rock) CD

Imprec, 2014. Used ... $11.99
Marisa Anderson's second solo album – and a rare contemporary artist release on the deep, dark and lost archival discoverers at Mississippi Records! Marisa is clearly inspired the music found on archival Mississippi LPs – particularly blues guitar based ones, but it's hardly a clinical old school delta blues revivalist set. The album features 12 improvised guitar and lap steel pieces, no overdubs. Compelling stuff! Titles include "Drop Down", "Night Before Last", "Last Light", "Nebulae", "Golden Hour" and more.

Curved AirAir Conditioning (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
The debut album from Curved Air – a group who had a decidedly different take on the proggish styles of the start of the 70s! For one thing, the group took their name from a Terry Riley tune – already showing their higher consciousness when it came to music – and the lineup also features a young Francis Monkman and Darry Way – the former an artist who'd soon do some great sound library and soundtrack work on the UK scene, the latter a violinist who'd continue to find new spaces for his instrument in years to come! The use of Way's violin is a great addition to the sound here – as he carves out these lean lines next to the more flowing vocals of singer Sonja Kristina – who's got a style that's almost a proggish adaptation of folk modes from a few years before – while the rest of the group comes in with the more expected guitar, keyboards, and drums – but almost always at a level that remains fresh and distinct. Titles include "Hide & Seek", "It Happened Today", "Stretch", "Screw", "Blind Man", "Vivaldi", and "Situations". 2CD edition features lots of bonus material – including "Thinking On The Floor", "It Happened Today (single)", "Rob One (take 2)", "What Happens When You Blow Yourself Up" – and a number of live tracks from the John Peel show!

English BeatWha'ppen ... LP
Sire, 1981. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of best ever albums by The English Beat – one that cemented their status as one of the most creative groups to come out of the ska revival scene! Wha'ppen has lots of fresh instrumentation and experimentation – but that's in service of some tight, insistent songcraft – and they never ever bury their their Caribbean influences. There's a bit more Afro Beat-inspired rhythms and some atmospheric underground pop touches, but it's still get plenty of the Jamaican style we loved about their earlier work, too – on a record that didn't get the acclaim it deserved at the time! Titles include "Monkey Murders", "I Am Your Flag", "Walk Away", "Get A Job", "The Limits We Set", "Dream Home In NZ", and "Drowning". LP, Vinyl record album

Paper BubbleBehind The Scenery – The Complete Paper Bubble (Scenery/Prisoners Victims Strangers Friends/I'm Coming Home/bonus tracks) ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/1981. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Beautiful work from Paper Bubble – a group who was maybe a brief footnote at a time when the UK music scene was really looming large with giants – but one who've gone onto get some huge respect in later years too! The group only issued one full album (Scenery) for Deram in 1969, and all of the tracks from their second planned record were never released – partly due to poor sales of the first, although the backing group from the second sessions went on to form Strawbs! That first album is maybe more than enough to showcase their genius – the duo of Brian Crane and Terence Brake, who were raised in folk, but had already really become more sophisticated singer/songwriters – working with string arrangements next to the acoustic sounds, handled by Phil Dennys, who'd done some great charts for The Bee Gees. The full Scenery album is presented here, along with the unreleased Prisoners Victims Strangers Friends second set, rare bonus tracks from the time, including singles and instrumentals – and a revival album from 1981, titled I'm Coming Home. Some of the unreleased material is slightly less high in production quality, due to no final mixing, but the whole thing's wonderful – and a real revelation in sound! 40 tracks ion all – including "MM Of LA", "Silly Bit Of Sentiment", "Fillin A Gap", "Being Human Being", "Working Man", "Sorry About That", "Woman", "Loving You", "Alone", "Somewhere To Belong", "Getting A Little Love", "Marcia", "Time", and "Saints & Sinners".

John RenbournFaro Annie ... CD
Reprise/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
An album of understated brilliance from the great John Renbourn – a set that mostly just features John on vocals and guitar, working through tunes of a traditional nature – yet delivering a record that's full of tremendously powerful moments! There's none of the hoke here that you might have gotten from a folk revival record from a decade before – and instead, Renbourn's bringing all the amazing new discoveries he and his contemporaries have unlocked in the acoustic guitar, as a way of opening up some of the darker corners and spookier elements of the tunes – none of which should be that strong on their own, but which work together here beautifully. Renbourn gets a bit of help from time to time – vocals from Dorris Henderson, harmonica from Pete Dyer, and drums from Terry Cox – but most of the set is just vocals and guitar, even more timeless in 1971 than it might have been before John plays a bit of sitar and harmonica, too – and titles include "Kokomo Blues", "Little Sadie", "Shake Shake Mama", 'The Cuckoo","Willy O Winsbury", "Faro Annie", and "Come On In My Kitchen". (Folk/Country, Rock) CD
